I was starting to think that I was never going to get this post up and with the upcoming weeks being so busy I wouldn't be surprised if those blogs are also pushed back, so be advised! As a teacher May and June are two of the busiest months (especially working at a year round school) and if you ball that with hunting for a new teaching position and trying to actually enjoy life it is hard to find time to do anything really. Alas, the writing goes on.
This past week was a good time to be a comic book reader. I was able to attend my local comic shop's Free Comic Book Day last Saturday and received around 22 books. That is not including the multiple issues within one bound book. I always find that day to be a blast because it gives you a chance to read some things that you may never even look twice at. I was able to read a small part of Finding Gossamer which Darren had been telling me for a while now was quite good and I must say I was impressed. There were a few other titles in there that were interesting but nothing that I can really think of off of the top of my head. I also received a free Iron Man Heroclix piece which was fun.
Speaking of Iron Man, I was able to see the third installment of the movie franchise last Saturday and I must say I was impressed. The only real grief I have with it is the ending being a tad lackluster and easily guessed but I don't want to ruin anything considering it has only been out a little over a week. I will say that if you have enjoyed the Avengers movie runs you should not let this one pass you by.
Of course finally, this week I had a light week from my pull list. I only grabbed four books:
Avenging Spider-Man #20
Avengers Assemble #15 AU
Uncanny Avengers #8
Uncanny X-Force #4
I am nervous that I have had two light weeks of books in a row. That makes me think this upcoming week is going to be quite heavy. Also, this upcoming week I will be recording The Panel Scanners episode 11 with Jonny Capps and Darren. It should be good times considering we took a short hiatus due to life being too busy. Well, until later this week, happy reading comic book fans.
